I'm deciding among several candidates for an individual contributor position. I keep thinking about how likely they are to stay a while, but am I right to consider that?
There are some whose experience is in the creative end of the spectrum (whereas our publications are quite pedestrian) and I wonder if they wouldn't start looking for something more creative once the "new" wears off and the economy gets better.
And one who has a great background in the same line of work, but at a much larger company, and I'm afraid she will find our operation primitive by comparison. (And this will be a pay cut for her, but she was told the pay by HR when they arranged the interview, and it's been 6 months since she was laid off from her previous position.) I fear she will continue looking for something at a bigger company, especially after she completes her BS in Management next year.
[Everyone I've interviewed is out of work or only working part time because of having been laid off...]
